DONALD Trump’s rally in Minneapolis has turned heads after people pointed out that it looked more like a Justin Bieber concert rather than a political meeting.
Teenage girls and boys were seen crying tears of joy as the US president talked about his win in the 2016 election to a 20,000-strong crowd in Minnesota.
Trump hit back at his usual foes – Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden, Barack Obama – during his rally, saying Biden “was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s a**”.
He added: “The Bidens got rich, and that is substantiated, while America got robbed. That’s what happened. Sleepy Joe and his friends sold out America.”
The US president’s speech lasted for a long 102 minutes, in which he discussed the recent impeachment inquiry placed against him, among other topics.
He said: “I’m energised, because we’re draining the swamp.
“The Democrats’ brazen attempt to overthrow our government will produce a backlash at the ballot box the likes of which they have never ever seen before in the history of this country.”
Trump also took the time to mention how he didn’t need the support of big celebrities such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z and The Boss.
He said: “I didn’t need Beyoncé and Jay-Z. I didn’t need little Bruce Springsteen,” before mocking Springsteen’s presence at political rallies.

He also said he would “do about two songs, then leave…and everyone leaves with him. And (Hillary Clinton is) still speaking in front of the same lousy crowd. Craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”
The Minneapolis rally also saw Trump play Prince’s “Purple Rain” before his entrance onto the stage in the late singer’s hometown.
Prince’s estate then hit back at Trump, saying: “President Trump played Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ tonight at a campaign event in Minneapolis despite confirming a year ago that the campaign would not use Prince’s music.
“The Prince Estate will never give permission to President Trump to use Prince’s songs.”
The estate then tweeted a picture of a document in which Trump confirms a year ago that his campaign would not use Prince’s music.
The topic of Ukraine was also on the agenda, as Trump defended his July conversation with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy as “a totally appropriate, casual, beautiful, accurate phone call”.
Trump’s request in a July phone call for the Ukrainian president to probe Biden is the focus of the impeachment inquiry into the president.
He accused “crooked” chairman of the House intelligence committee, Adam Schiff, of making up a “fake conversation that never happened”.
But despite the rally attracting tens of thousands of Trump supporters in Minnesota’s capital, several protesters interrupted his speech as demonstrators marched outside and demanded his removal from office.
There were reports of police using pepper spray and making arrests when fights broke out during the rally.
